In this day and age, where social media is everywhere, it is not only important, but necessary to find a professional New Windsor Real Estate agent that is social media savvy. It is no longer the norm to simply put a home for sale in the MLS (Multiple Listing Service) and a For Sale sign in the front yard.
Today, to get the best possible price, a Realtor needs to increase the visibility of your home to find the best buyer. By creating a solid online presence, your home can instantly reach thousands of potential buyers who now spend the majority of their house hunting process by viewing prospective homes on-line.
When looking for a New Windsor real estate agent to sell your home, here are five good questions you should ask so you can sell your home more effectively and for a better price.
1. Do you have your own website and/or blog?
2. How will you increase my home’s presence online?
3. Do you have a Twitter, LinkedIn, YouTube and Facebook account?
4. Will my home be listed on all major brokerage sites?
5. Which sites will my home be listed in?
Why all of this social media? Word can get out instantly if there is anything you want to get out to prospective buyers. For example, a property tour of your home can be uploaded on YouTube making it available immediately for an interested buyer who may live out-of-town. Using a twitter account can also notify potential buyers if there is anything interesting about your home. For instance, just simply tweeting, “This great Windsor home has a brand new chef’s kitchen!” may encourage buyers to click on the link to view the home and make an appointment for a showing.
A New Windsor real estate agent who is actively engaged with social media has a much better chance of selling your home than an agent who does not. It’s another valuable tool in finding the right buyer for your home.
